Avid followers of the wooden boat scene will know that 6 young Dutch boat builders from Amsterdam will be in Franklin constructing a 16 square metre sailboat at the Wooden Boat School from early November. This boat will go on display at the 2017 Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart.
They are looking for home-stay hosts in or near Franklin who can offer one or more berths. Want to help? Call the AWBF office on (03) 6223 3375 or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The classic Dutch boat in the picture is nothing like the boat they will be building, which is a 16 square metre which is not unlike our own beloved Flying Fifteen
